Virtual tires in the early vehicle development phase

  title={Virtual tires in the early vehicle development phase},
  author={Florian Niedermeier and Ulrico Peckelsen and Frank Gauterin},
Pacejka’s Magic Formula (MF), a semiempirical tire model, is nowadays the worldwide standard for vehicle dynamic simulations [1. [] Key Method They can be set either according to a simple measurement on a tire test rig, or to the specification of the user. These tire CVs are then used to generate a MFparameter file. A genetic algorithm achieves the best fitting results. Possible applications are the modification of specific tire characteristics, a global sensitivity analysis (between tyre CVs and the…

Determination of optimal rim and tire dimensions regarding load capacity, driving dynamics, and efficiency

Tire development based on functional tire characteristics (FTC) makes it possible to objectify target values across all topics and thus contributes to a clear target agreement between tire and

On the Design of Vehicle Architectures for Driving Dynamics subject to Uncertainty and Feasibility Restrictions

The aim of this work is the development of a new design method that combines the benefits of qualitative and quantitative methods, by which the overall layout design of vehicle dynamics for individual vehicles but also vehicle platforms increases in transparency and efficiency in order to satisfy the future requirements on automotive development.

Estimation of feasible ranges of functional tire characteristics based on tire dimension, inflation pressure, and wheel load

The functional properties of a tire contribute significantly to the achievement of the overall vehicle targets in terms of driving performance, fuel consumption, and comfort. Tire development based

Determination of optimal rim and tire dimensions regarding load capacity, driving dynamics, and efficiency

A method for determining the optimal rim and tire dimensions by considering the respective requirements is presented and solution spaces of optimal dimension ranges are shown graphically.



Virtual Optimization of the Interaction between Tires and the Vehicle

A new method to virtually optimize the tire-vehicle interaction in the early vehicle development phase using a double-track model and a genetic algorithm proved to be the most suitable, especially if taking into account the presence of many local optima.

Tire model TMeasy

Tire and Vehicle Dynamics

An Alternative Method to Determine the Magic Tyre Model Parameters Using Genetic Algorithms

The comparison between analytical optimization methods and the method proposed is discussed and its main advantages are its simplicity of implementation and its fast convergence to optimal solution, with no need of deep knowledge of the searching space.

Varianzbasierte Sensitivitätsanalyse als Beitrag zur Bewertung der Zuverlässigkeit adaptronischer Struktursysteme

The presented work addresses the variance based sensitivity analysis of smart structural dynamical systems. The general purpose of a sensitivity analysis is to identify the influence of a specified

On the L2-discrepancy for anchored boxes

The L2-discrepancy for anchored axis-parallel boxes has been used in several recent computational studies, mostly related to numerical integration, as a measure of the quality of uniform distribution

On the L2-Discrepancy for Anchored Boxes

It is pointed out that if the number of points is not large enough in terms of the dimension then nearly the lowest possible L 2 -discrepancy is attained by a pathological point set, and hence the L 1 -Discrepancy may not be very relevant for relatively small sets.

Handbook Of Genetic Algorithms

This book sets out to explain what genetic algorithms are and how they can be used to solve real-world problems, and introduces the fundamental genetic algorithm (GA), and shows how the basic technique may be applied to a very simple numerical optimisation problem.
